Of course. Also looks like UAE is dropping their peg either way to stop 
their 11% inflation.

Your typical, "oh this has been going on for a while". Story is all 
over, here's one http://www.cyberspaceorbit.com/ConnectingTheDots.htm

Some are speculating all traffic to Kish (the island with the 
superweapon) that's left has to pass through either a US or UK 
controlled router, which doesn't seem that improbable anymore.

If not, we'll see all cables cut until that's true. The Bourse cannot 
possibly be allowed to happen, or 95% of the worlds population that 
desperately needs dollars now for oil, won't have any use for them at all.
